Distinguishing those psychopathological conditions that are internalized (depression, excess anxiety, obsessions) from those that are externalized (conduct disorders, psychopathy), this book examines the former as a special class of disorders in children and adolescents. In separate sections, it deals with the nature and classification of these disorders, provides a chapter each on the specific disorders, then looks at the behavioural manifestations and consequences. Discussing these disorders as a related group helps clarify their dynamics and the prospects for intervention, and examines the whole concept of internalization as a mental process that can be disordered.
